    Tikka T3 .308 Bushpig

    Tikka T3 .308 Bushpig. (SCOPE AND RINGS NOT INCLUDED).

    Rifle is in great condition and has fired no more then 200 rounds.

    Barrel shortened to 16" and has a Shultz and Larsen Hardcore suppressor fitted. I am normally a big DPT fan but these suppressors are damn good.

    Extra hole drilled for the normal tikka half bolt safety modification. (allows you to engage the safety in the half bolt position which locks the bolt in that position).

    The stock has also been filled with foam to remove the unnatural hollow sound made when bumped against trees bush stalking etc.Name:  IMG_5164.jpg

    Hi mate. Where are you based?
    Has this been fired at any cardboard and produced any top notch holes?

    Hi Dan, I had intentions of developing a load for it but unfortunately never got there. I was just shooting factory federal powershok at around MOA and never played with any other brands for better accuracy being a bush gun. I would love to keep it but I have a 284 project underway that needs some funding haha. I am based in Sanson, Manawatu.

    Thanks.

    Hey mate look back through the forum at pricing of 308 tikka bush pigs and that will give you a better idea of what they sell for. Speaking from first hand as I only sold mine recently.

    Hey mate, yea interesting. Seems odd really. It would cost around $2000 maybe a bit more to get a new rifle into the same state as these so I find it odd they won’t sell? I would say $1000 is a poor representation of their value.

    Thanks,
    Dylan.

    I would say between $900 and $1100 would be the going rate with barrel cut down and can fitted.

    Its just a tikka with a can. Drilling an extra hole for the cock to fit in decreases value
